Happy New Year to everyone and best wishes for a better 2021.
Thought you might like to cheer up the new year by enjoying browsing in the “Country Life Archive”, to which we have recently subscribed. I’m sure you are all familiar with the magazine as an amazing source of information and photos of country houses, estates and leisure pursuits, with of course lots of adverts and biographical information too, giving a great insight to lifestyles and culture of their times. It covers the period from 1897 – 2005, in colour and is fully searchable.
Find the resource from this link: https://auth.nls.uk/eresources/browse/307 within our Digital Gallery. To use this from your home you will need to register online as a Library reader and to have a postal address in Scotland. This is very straightforward to do and the information is here: https://auth.nls.uk/join/
